Talk:White supremacy

From Conservapedia

The Ku Klux Klan is an atheistic movement, really? [1][2][3]. Sometimes people of all beliefs and backgrounds need to face up to the fact there are undesirable individuals or groups that share or partially share their beliefs. The Westboro Baptist church, which has been described as liberal by some Conservapedia members are anything but, same for Anders Breivik. Face up to it folks, the Conservative movement, like any moral system has some evil within it.--ColeP (talk) 11:09, 9 September 2015 (EDT)

I think you are mistaken about the article ever indicating that the Ku Klux Klan was an atheist group who was racist. The article does mention the Creativity Movement which is an atheist, white supremacist group.
Second, I updated the article to mention that the Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke was an evolutionary racist. Conservative (talk) 12:09, 9 September 2015 (EDT)
Whilst white supremacists (and other racist groups for that matter) may identify as being Christians, their beliefs and prejudices means that they aren't following the word of jesus correctly and are thus not real christians. FFAF (talk) 12:49, 9 September 2015 (EDT)
ColeP, the Ku Klux Klan lead a protest against the Westboro Baptist Church.[4]

Second, I think the Westboro Baptist Church is somewhat of a hodgepodge of conflicting political ideologies and difficult to categorize as far as their political ideology. For example, on the one hand, there are anti-homosexuality and the Democrats are pro-homosexual legal marriage. On the other hand, "The Westboro Church helped run Al Gore's Kansas campaign in 1988. Fred Phelps Jr. was a Gore delegate to the 1988 Democratic National Convention and invited to the first Clinton-Gore inauguration in 1993. Phelps Sr. ran for Governor of Kansas in 1990 and received 6.7% of the vote. In 1992, Fred Phelps Sr. ran for U.S. Senate and received 30.8% of the ballots cast.Phelps has strongly supported Fidel Castro and Saddam Hussein in the past. Hussein allowed a group of Westboro delegates to visit Iraq to protest against the U.S. Margie Phelps has gone on Twitter to proclaim her love for Obama and Democrats and hate the GOP and the Tea Party."[5] Conservative (talk) 13:47, 9 September 2015 (EDT)

It's because the Democratic party of today is drastically different from the democratic party of yesterday. --Scatach (talk) 14:11, 9 September 2015 (EDT)

President Donald J. Trump's views

Would it be worthwhile to list all the times Trump has condemned white supremacy? (The press has made it sound like he's never done so.)

I remember the first time I saw this fake news tactic, during the 2016 campaign. One weekend, he was asked if he'd condemn (or "disavow") a list of racist hate groups in a press interview,

  • When Tapper asked if Trump would unequivocally condemn and reject the white supremacists who support him, Trump said he would need to conduct research into the groups. [6]

Trump then spent the bulk of the next 2 or 3 weeks opening every interview with "I disavow" or "I condemn" but the press failed to acknowledge this condemnation, acting as if they were totally unaware of it!

  • "David Duke is a bad person, who I disavowed on numerous occasions over the years," Trump said on MSNBC's "Morning Joe."
  • "I disavowed him. I disavowed the KKK," Trump added. "Do you want me to do it again for the 12th time? I disavowed him in the past, I disavow him now." [7]
